EN3005 Structural Design

[Lectures: 26 hrs; Tutorials: 13 hrs; Pre-requisites: CV2011; Academic Unit: 3.0]


​Learning Objective

The objective of the course is to provide environmental engineering students a basic understanding of the behaviour and design of simple reinforced concrete and steel members. This is achieved through analysis and design of beams, slabs, and columns at the cross section and member level. The emphasis of the course is on basic design concepts together with appropriate code application.

Course Content

Part 1 Concrete Design: Basic structural members and structural systems. Loads and load effects. Section analysis and design for bending. Design for shear. Design of compression members. Design of slab systems. Design of foundation.

Part 2 Steel Design: Limit state design. Calculation of beam loads. Section classification. Local buckling and lateral torsional buckling. Design check for tension, compression, shear, bending and deflection.
